Bill Hader will be Andre Braugher's replacement as the captain of the ninety-ninth precinct, FOX revealed today at their Television Critics Association press stop.
In the second season finale, Captain Holt was moved from the Nine-Nine to the NYPD Public Relations department by his arch-enemy Madeline Wuntch. Gina followed Captain Holt out of the precinct. The season ended on a cliff hanger with the squad waiting for their new captain to emerge from the elevator.
It's not clear over how many episodes Hader will appear as the squad's captain. Andre Braugher and Chelsea Peretti are not leaving the show. The writers have previously said we will see Holt and Gina in their new jobs at the start of the season.
This announcement follows the casting news that Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) will make a guest appearance in the third season as a potential love interest for the Nine-Nine's Charles Boyle.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns for its third season on Sunday, September 27 at 8:30/7:30c on FOX.
